I am trying to embed my YouTube video in my blog. However wen I submit/preview the post the player says "video missing". YouTube provides me the following video URL: http://youtu.be/AC19xDJCF1s

However the blog input form doesn't accept this URL. It expects the URL in the format: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AC19xDJCF1s

I can enter this 2nd URL with my YouTube username and the form will accept the input, but the video isn't working. What is going on there? How can I get this to work?

I managed to get it to work thanks to you. When hitting reply on this thread you'll see the actual code that is used in the message so I could see how you did manage to make it work. It would by nice if the blog YouTube form will create this link correctly instead of people having to find out how to do it themselves. Thanks for your support Raiser!!

To make it work add the following to the blog (without the first space):
